The crowd descends on Lake View again, jumps on the CTA bus and breaks the window of the police car


For the second night in a row, a large group of people took to the streets of Lake View from Monday to early Tuesday, with video showing people dancing atop a police cruiser and CTA bus as officers tried to contain the unrest.

Police say someone smashed the windshield of a police cruiser not far from Belmont Red Line station around 1 a.m. Tuesday.

Police reported no injuries and only one arrest: a woman cited for drinking in public and blocking traffic.

The incident came after crowds descended on Lake View after the Pride Parade on Sunday night – with three people shot and four people stabbed.

At around 1.30am Monday, three people were shot and wounded after a gunman opened fire in the 3100 block of North Clark Street.

Two hours earlier, a woman had been arrested after stabbing three people during a fight in the 1000 block of West Belmont Avenue.

Hours earlier, less than half a mile away, a Chicago police sergeant was hospitalized after being punched during an arrest in the 3300 block of North Clark Street.

Around 5:30 a.m. Monday, a man was stabbed during an argument in the 900 block of West Belmont Avenue. A woman stabbed him in the abdomen and biceps, police said. The 33-year-old man checked himself into St. Margaret’s Hospital in Hammond, Indiana, before being transferred to Stroger Hospital, police said. His condition has not been released and no one has been arrested.
